There is an old saying: The measure is good in cure. I am acting with these words in mind. Especially when the garden is the subject. If you are entering a cold winter, you will get early in the autumn measures, protect your fruit trees from the harsh conditions of winter.
It consists of four seasons a year; winter, spring, summer and autumn. Plants and trees also experience life cycles over these four seasons. The cycle of life for people occurs every day. We need a certain amount of rest (we call it sleep) every day to start the next day. Our resting period and quality determine how healthy and productive we will be in the next days. Most trees "sleep" every winter (we call it the dormancy period). Rest periods and quality determine how healthy and productive they will be in later periods! Let's now prepare for winter and take this dormancy period together with the most effective methods of firming trees and plants.
When the summer is over, the grass and soil cover becomes hard and the rodents bark the tree bark. This damaging situation grows in cold weather and when the snow covers. In the farm, the stacks and soil cover in the additional structures create a suitable environment for this animal house. In urban settings, the gardens, fences and land cover serve as nests and can be even more damaging to rural settlements. You do not want to wake up one morning and see them end up being hungry by hungry creatures after you have spent so much effort to grow plants and trees.
Rabbits can bend right into their fifth or sixth season. One simple and inexpensive solution is to apply a tree protector. Also protect the body from sunlight in the winter, as well as the surrounding guard. Damage to trees in winter is mostly due to the warming of their bodies during bright, sunny winter days. At night, the body can not be adapted to sudden temperature drops and faces the danger of disintegration. It is almost a necessity to protect the body with the tree protector!
Protect the Stems of Your Fruit Trees with Protectors
Sunburn is a widespread injury in tree hoods (especially on clear sunny days). The sun heats the tree horns during the day, and in the evening there is a risk of breakage and disintegration of these horns. This is because there is not enough time to make the tree adapt to the fall in temperature. Once the tree has matured and the trunk diameter has become too large for the tree protectors, you can protect the 50/50 diluted mixture of tree, water-based, or white latex paint by applying it to the trunk below the bottom of the tree.
Insulation is commonly used with Mulch (straw cover), Crackle or Snow / Ice (short term).
Protect the Roots of Your Fruit Trees with Mulch
You should insulate your fruit trees. But do it with natural ingredients. Not with fiberglass! Fruit tree root is the most important benefit of insulation. Damaged branches may be replaced with new ones, but if the root is damaged, the whole tree may lose.
Mulch acts as an insulated material that protects roots when temperatures drop in the winter and early spring during the late autumn. Using mulch is a very effective way to protect fruit trees in winter. (especially for the roots of trees) Mulch should not exceed 2.5 to 5.0 cm thick during the growing season, but it may be a bit thicker in winter. When the weather starts to warm up in the spring, you need to pick up with a lot of furrow rakes. It is useful to know that not every mulch is equal, and in winter protection from cold, some types of straw covers provide better results than others. At the same time, the mulch prevents weeds from emerging and protects the nematode during the growing season. Establishing a weed barracks around the tree and covering it with barley mulch is one of the simplest ways to protect your tree from many problems that may occur in the roots during the year.
Warning: Be careful not to pour mulch around the trunk to avoid creating an environment that can be badly damaged by kufes or carrots.
Types of Mulch Effective in Protecting Fruit Trees in the Winter from Cold
These materials dissolve when they are added to the soil as well as providing insulation.
Leaves / Fertilizer. They can be condensed and frozen, so you have to use it carefully.
Wood bark fir
Branches of unbroken trees
Stones and other inorganic materials are not effective in protecting fruit trees from cold!
As an added bonus, the best mulches are also ideal hiding places for rodents and other creatures who see the bark and roots as a food source. To protect your trees from these harmful insects, especially ones that can make them home in thick mulch, you can put them into the mulch from products such as rodent repellents.
Protect the Roots of Your Fruit Trees with Attachment
It is a great material for insulation. It is also used for "natural insulation" in buildings. The stem is sometimes mixed with straw or used synonymously. The straw attracts and absorbs the nematode, and the stem of the crop is stronger and prone to dryness. If you are going to temporarily cover the bodies of smaller trees with something like sackcloth, do not forget to add a layer of insulative, moisture-repellent seedling to the interior.
Protect the Roots of Your Fruit Trees with Snow
Temporarily acting as an insulator. Snow, like mulch, is like a protective blanket; creates a barrier between low air temperatures and the ground. The greatest benefit of profits is that it is best served at the end. Thus, the moisture needed by the tree roots is also provided. Snow and other rains that fall in the winter provide soil and roots with the necessary moisture throughout the winter, and you do not need to provide winter water for your sleepy fruit trees, as opposed to the areas where the winter months have dried.
Winter injuries occur more easily in dry roots than in moist roots. This also applies to fruit trees growing in the pots in areas where freezing or near freezing temperatures are experienced.
